Living Life More Fully in the Shadow of Mortality

April 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Jung observed that “life is a short pause between two mysteries.” That fact is not in  debate; what does matter, then, is how we live that short pause. Given that mortality frames our brief journey, how can we live more fully in its presence without being defined by morbidity, fear, and denial? What are the attitudes and practices which enable us to live more fully? And what psychological maturation brings us to experience this short pause as rich with meaning?
